Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
When I was growing up, I always wanted to be a doctor. I loved science, and biology was my favorite class in school. Physiology and anatomy fascinated me. I also loved working with people, a love that was strengthened by my time spent as a Girl Scout and a dance teacher. Medicine seemed like a natural career choice, and I went on to study biological sciences at Cornell University and then medicine at New Jersey Medical School.
What I want my patients to know about me:
As a breast surgical oncologist, I think it is important to treat the whole person. A diagnosis of breast cancer can affect multiple aspects of a patient’s life, and I do not believe that my job is over once the surgical treatment is complete. I am here to help coordinate the multidisciplinary care that a patient often needs while going through treatment and to help navigate survivorship.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
If I am not working, I am spending time with my husband and son. We often go exploring, and we like finding new restaurants and activities to try. We also love biking, cooking, reading, and traveling. Florida is a favorite vacation destination of ours.
